Dear Indie | Kindle Vella, Anyone?

Hi Indies! I normally don’t jump on new trends—still not on TikTok or BookTok despite the rave reviews. I’m just lazy as sh*t when it comes to apps and social media, and especially social media apps. 😉 But I have to admit that I just started publishing my first serial on Kindle Vella to giveContinue reading “Dear Indie | Kindle Vella, Anyone?”

A Day With My Muse

As I’m watching the calendar zip toward the end of the year, I’m really feeling the pressure, and all of my 2019 goals slip right through my fingers. It’s not that I haven’t been writing, I’ve just been writing everything except the books I had planned to finish before the end of the year. DisciplineContinue reading “A Day With My Muse”

Going Forward to Look Behind

Can’t Let Go

Alright, NaBloPoMo, you wanted More/Less… here’s a problem I have.  I accumulate documents.  Look, when I first started writing in my teens, Bill Gates hadn’t done jack to help me, yet.  The only thing I had to use was a notebook and a pen.  A couple of years into it, my dad got a BrotherContinue reading “Can’t Let Go”

Then the Panic Sets In…

Ever since I was given the go-ahead to mention my upcoming novel here on my blog, I’ve been combating this timid anxiety trying to creep its way into my brain.  “Relax,” I tell myself.  “It’s still a year away” – give or take.  It’s not about that novel, though.  It’s about what comes next. TheContinue reading “Then the Panic Sets In…”
